Post news and reviews for The Good Fight here
Recently announced new title: The Good Fight
“Production has started in New York City on the much-anticipated spin-off of The Good Wife, which is set to premiere on CBS All Access in February.
The Good Fight will pick up one year after the events of the final broadcast of the CBS show that aired May 8. In the new series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia, while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart’s savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms.”November 1, 2016 at 8:48 am #1201943026
I am still trying finish the last season of TGW, but I’m really excited for this spin-off. Can’t wait!November 1, 2016 at 10:41 am #1201943113
After being a big Good Wife fan for most of its run, I honestly could not make it through the final season so my enthusiasm for this is somewhat muted. Also will this be available on any other platform? I don’t see myself getting a subscription to CBS ALL Access for just one original program.November 1, 2016 at 10:57 am #1201943123
CBS all access will also have Star Trek discovered even though I am not sure if that will happen as first it got delayed and now Bryan fuller stepped down.November 1, 2016 at 11:40 am #1201943148
CBS will air the series premiere on network TV and then all subsequent episodes will air exclusively on CBS All Access. I don’t think that this is the right property (with the older-skewing demographic of The Good Wife) to help launch their streaming service, but I can envision a scenario where they move The Good Fight to network for a second season if their online platform flounders.

I’ll check this out because I am a big fan of Christine Baranski and am encouraged that the King’s will be running this show after-all. But I am uninspired by the generic title. I was hoping for something more like “The Good Life.”November 2, 2016 at 1:10 pm #1201943887
Seems like a lazy title to me. They took so long to decide on one that I was expecting something interesting or different but apparently not.November 7, 2016 at 4:23 pm #1201946619
Gary Cole is joining the cast as recurring!

Carrie Preston will be dropping by the new series:
Maybe she’ll put the show on the map at the Emmys, retaining her Guest Actress nom from last year?
